I run emacs as XMODIFIERS=@im=none emacs24, otherwise some multi-keys for typing things like à won't work.

How can I make this option permanent, so when I type emacs24, it runs as XMODIFIERS=@im=none emacs24.


Just create an alias for it. Add this line to your shell's initialization file (~/.bashrc if you're using bash):

alias emacs24='XMODIFIERS=@im=none emacs24'

Then, launching emacs24 will actually run XMODIFIERS=@im=none emacs24.
